Dear Bill and family deepest sympathy for your loss. Dorothy was my mothers very favorite niece. Mother cherished her visits. Lots of love there. Love, Butch

Dorothy was a dear friend of my Mother's and a kind and supportive next-door neighbor to her for over 40 years; she was also a supportive and loving friend to me as I cared for my Mother. Dorothy can only be described as a "godly woman," full of love and grace, and I am sure my Mother was there to greet her when she entered heaven.
Rest in peace, dear Mrs. Duckett. And thank you on both my Mother's and my behalf.
Stephanie Dahl
